  1. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    My '14 1LT has 83k on it. I've started a few different threads around here as I decided on replacing worn parts and trying to get another 50-75k out of it. I just change the original FR170 tires out for some Nokian Entyre 2.0s, hoping the old tires were the cause of a rather poor/uneven handling...

    Hey Guys, I just bought my brothers 2013 Cruze LS 6MT with 20k miles for 6k. Great buy I think and will be using it solely for the daily commute to work. It’s grear as a commuter being cheap and easy to maintain but I wish it had some better handling and the shifting wasn’t so clunky. The...

    I'd like to provide a brief (relatively) write-up on suspension modifications for those of you who are interested. It seems that there's a great deal of misunderstanding regarding some suspension modifications, so in an effort to help you guys actually improve how your car handles (as opposed to...

    I have a 2011 LS and I noticed the handling is kinda "loose". It is not bad it seems to take turns OK for me. I noticed the car "rolls very quickly" and that gets me in "trouble" when it comes to sudden turns/stopping. Would upgrading to 17 or 18 in wheels help the situation? I was wondering if...

    As the title says, how's your 2012 Cruze handling the snow? Much of the northern areas of the nation have finally experienced snow this week, so this thread seemed appropriate. For my 2012 Eco MT, it's handling the white stuff all right on its snow tires. It's needed the grip to get going on a...
  10. Gen1 Service Issues
    Anyone ever notice out on the freeway if you car feels kinda uneasy to keep going straight? feels like a toe issue to me, but it also seems the wheel spread is just right that it fights the crown of the road and wants to be on one side or the other? It does it with the stock wheels or the winter...

    I'm curious about how the Cruze with stock tires handles in winter conditions. Any feedback? Considering purchase of LTZ this fall. Set of winter tires might happen down the line but not right away. Really interested to know how this car is in the snow? Thanks!

    There is a family member of mine that has a 2009 Ford Focus with "European Inspired Suspension" and it's amazing. I can do around sharp curves at a good speed, and it feels great. I've heard the Chevy Cruze is good when it comes to the suspension. How good is it? Do you have fun with your Chevy...

    heres another one of those videos i was talking about how chevy interviewed several people after they test drove a cruze. im a little skeptical about the reactions though. i dont think you can actually find out how good a car handles if youre driving slow on city roads and then say it handles...

    Winter is coming in a few months and I want to find out how good this thing handles in the snow. I know it handles good in the dry at the same its no STI in the snow. Anyone have first hand experience with this?
